See above, it means at least that the problem is not inside pkg_add.
You can use HTTP, but it will some overhead for the pattern processing.
You could try to write down the commands pkg_add is sending and issue

is legacy and works for everyone else, I am highly inclined so assume
that the proxy is responsible.
